Why this petition matters

Started by Gabby Lerner

Good afternoon Chancellor Malatras, 

Students have brought to my attention how severe levels of stress have affected their mental health. We are overwhelmed, overworked and exhausted, which is causing an influx of anxiety and depression. We need a break. 

We eagerly tried to urge you last semester to allow for a break this spring to avoid the fallout of feeling this burden. 

Now, we assert how desperately we need that spring break to be reinstated this semester. We respectfully ask that you instate an academic break for the upcoming week of April 11th - 17th.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration, 

Gabrielle Lerner, 

Student at SUNY Empire 

SUNY Student Assembly Vice-Chair of State Ops

Cc: Dr. John Graham, Senior Advisor to the Chancellor
